When I lived in Weston-super-Mare I always preferred the winter time, early spring, because you nearly always got the beach to yourself. Which meant you didn’t get no damn tourists walking right across the front of a bracket of 5. Another good point is the beach is so wide and shallow that you could often get reflections like the one shown in this image. Coupled with a good few miles of sandy coastline means you can always find something to photograph. Now I’ve moved to North Wales I’ve got a very similar coastline so I look forward to getting out and getting some good High Dynamic Range photographs
Technical Note: Image is a bracket of 5 RAW from -2 to +2 in 1 EV steps taken with a Samsung GX10 fitted with an 18-50mm kit lens @ 18mm. ISO 100, f11, shutter speeds from 1/250 sec to 1/15 sec. Camera was mounted on a RedSnapper RS-284 & RSH-12 Ball Head and the shutter was fired using infra-red remote control. HDR processing was with Unified Color‘s HDR Expose.
